Behind the Steam AFTER HOURS
Auburn Heights After Hours is combining with Behind the Steam for a special event!
Hollywood comes to Auburn Heights for this year’s Auburn Heights Invitational: Classic Car Show and Garden Party. Join us a few days before the event to meet two classic car owners who are also featured in the show. At 6:00 pm they will chat about their autos that happen to match ones on the big screen! Lee Edgar owns a 1961 Chevrolet Corvette that is a close copy to the iconic one featured in 1978’s Animal House and Dennis Cannon owns a 1965 Mustang Convertible that is a match to the one driven by James Bond femme fatale Fione Volpe in 1965’s Thunderball. Guests will have the opportunity to see these cars in person andask the owners questions.
PLUS enjoy all the components of our Auburn Heights After Hours event, which include Ennis BBQ food truck serving up dinner, wine and craft beer from Dew Point Brewing Co., outdoor games and access to the Marshall Steam Museum. Some seating will be available; bring blankets & chairs, if you wish. Friendly, leashed dogs are welcome at this event.
